Europa League: Giroud beats Jovic, Aubameyang to scoop Golden Boot

Olivier Giroud secured this season's Europa League Golden Boot, as he helped his Chelsea side see off Arsenal in the Baku finals on Wednesday night. 

The Frenchman was leading the scorers' chart with 10 goals going into the finals and needed to add at least one more to surge clear of closest opponents. 

And surge he did, as his 48th goal gave him the boot, as well as set the Blues to a memorable European night win against their rivals. 

Arsenal's Emerick Aubameyang was also in contention for the gong having scored eight goals in the campaign, but could not add to his tally against Chelsea. 

 

 

Luka Jovic finished the campaign as the runners up, having scored 10, including two against eventual winners; Chelsea in the semifinals. 

 

 

Giroud has had a stellar season for the Blues, and his efforts have been rewarded with a one-year contract extension.
